cyber-physical

The global cyber-physical system market will witness a 8.7% growth between 2017 and 2028, according to a new report issued by Future Market Insights.

Revenue generation within the market is expected to increase from over $55 million to just above $137 million during the forecast period.

The research firm says the flourishing economy of developing countries will trigger the demand for cyber-physical systems.

With the lowering prices of devices such as sensors, several medium and small scale manufacturers and plant owners are shifting their focus towards the deployment of cyber-physical systems in order to convert them into smart factories. These type of cyber-physical systems not only help in eliminating errors that occur due to human intervention but also decrease the overall operational and production costs of a plant.

It is always wise to invest in the latest technology instead of being a laggard in terms of technology adoption. Both developed and developing countries are adopting smart technologies to enable a seamless work experience. With this, the demand for cyber-physical systems is also gaining traction across the globe, thereby compelling service providers and vendors to collaborate with solution providers and integrate various communication platforms in order to push the implementation of cyber-physical systems. The core strategies that several cyber-physical system providers are implementing are investment in research and development and partnerships with research organizations for product development.

Decreasing prices of networking and sensors to boost adoption

The principal components of a cyber-physical system are storage units, sensors, computing unit, software, and actuators. The declining prices of sensors reduce the overall cost associated with the system, which makes it achievable for small- and medium-sized enterprises. This in turn drives the adoption and application of cyber-physical systems across various industries. Furthermore, the growing economy of several developing economies is benefiting the adoption of cyber-physical systems across the globe.

The average household income of developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil among others is anticipated to increase significantly in the coming years. This will shoot up the demand and adoption of new technologically advanced systems such as IoT and CPS, as these nations have witnessed a transition in their spending behavior, and have shown positive adaptability towards such systems for an enhanced end user experience. The swelling economic growth of several developing countries is expected to drive the global cyber-physical system market.

Data breaches and security threats to obstruct market growth

The core factor limiting the growth and adoption of cyber-physical systems is the dearth of security associated with these systems. As any type of system is linked with the cloud, it becomes susceptible to cyber-attacks and data breaches. Moreover, the change from a closed system to an open system has further made way for this risk.

As the application of cyber-physical systems is in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive, among others, it comprises valuable data and information that could lead to a catastrophe under a data attack. Consequently, with the threat of compromising critical data, many industries are hesitant in adopting cyber-physical systems. This can restrain market growth to a certain extent.
